I had some Bridgestone Dueler AT Revos that I loved and got about 70k miles out of them and they were really quiet on the highway and great grip offroad, in water, snow etc... Plus they look awesome... my 2 cents
You bring up a good point concerning noise. I think any tire that will do decently well off road will have more noise than a more pavement oriented tire. It's just a characteristic of the beast. However, I think the BFG AT KO model is one of the quietest tires on pavement that performs to such a high level off road. This tire has been around forever, and I guess there's a good reason for that. I used mine on an '89 full size GMC Jimmy 4X4 that was lifted. As many know, these are old school, tankish vehicles that aren't very nice to their tires for highway driving with their antiquated, rough suspension and drive axle design. I drove the wheels off this truck for decades. I went through several sets of these BFG's. The lowest mileage on a set I got was 44,000 miles. The highest I got was 58,000. I got better mileage after that first 44K set by getting a hardcore 4-wheel alignment on the Jimmy, which isn't easy, and by rotating the tires. Most good off road tires burn down in 20-30K and are noisy as heck. I have friends with other models/brands of off road tires, and most of them are horrid. I just think the BFG AT KO is the best compromise out there as an all around tire. And they're not that expensive for the performance they offer IMO as compared to most.Looking where you live I think you off roading will be wooded areas and not sandy rocky areas much the same as I have here. If that is the case the BFG's are VERY good mud tires. My only issue is the noise and the amount of milage. My last experience with BFG was on my 97 Ram and at the time the BFG AT's were good for about 40K. I do not know if the amount of interstate driving helps or hurts these tires. They do have noise.
